If you are getting ready to have some construction done on your home, whether is it having an addition built, a garage made, or simply renovating the living room, there is going to be a lot of trash. This trash is not going to all fit in the small trash cans the municipal trash company gives you for your weekly pick up. When you talk with the contractor, ask if they will arrange for construction dumpster rental services. If they do not, it will be up to you to contact a dumpster rental company and have a dumpster delivered. Here are a few reasons you will find this is important other than just being able to have the trash removed.
Construction waste can be dangerous if left lying around the yard. Boards may have nails in them, and any drywall may cause respiratory issues due to the gypsum particles being released when the paper covering is damaged. In addition, if any insulation is pulled out to be replaced, people may get a rash or be itchy. Loose boards in the yard can trip people, and other materials may fall onto someone if not secured somewhere. A dumpster is a perfect place for keeping all construction waste materials out of everyone's way.
Not all waste is going to be big and bulky. There will be small pieces of wood, drywall, and insulation that can get tossed around the yard. In addition, there will be nails, screws, and other small materials that can be easily lost in the yard only to end up in someone's foot. When you have a dumpster available, it can be moved to the area that is being worked on at the moment. Any trash can be simply tossed into the bin instead of falling onto the ground.
You will need to coordinate with the dumpster rental company to arrange for the pick up of the trash. Sometimes you will need to arrange a pick up even if the dumpster is not full. When you are putting heavy items, like concrete, in the dumpster, it will need to be emptied long before it is full. There are regulations as to how heavy the load can be in the dumpster before it must be emptied. The rental company can give you all the details on what is allowed in the dumpster and how much it can hold. Make sure you discuss all this with the construction contractor so they do not break any regulations and cause you to be fined or charged more.Share

Moving out of the city changed a lot of things for me. No longer did I have the community dumpster for my trash to rely on. It was up to me to find a garbage removal company and set up an account to have the trash picked up each week. I quickly learned that there is more to garbage removal than setting trash cans out along the road for pick up. My blog is all about getting your trash removed when you live in the country. You will learn the tips that have helped me keep the animals out of my trash and so much more here on my blog.
